PRESS REVIEW 13 Feb 13

Kosovo Press Review – February 13, 2013

Kosovo far away from visa liberalization. No Peace Treaty expected between Pristina and Belgrade. Albania reiterates the need for Kosovo recognition.

Pristina

EXPRESS

“We are nowhere” is the title of the main article at the front page of the Kosovo daily. The paper says Brussels reminded Kosovo institutions on Tuesday that they have done very few in the visa liberalization process.

The European Commission, the daily reports, stressed the need for the fight of organized crime and corruption.

“Based on what European officials said, Kosovars have to wait a lot until they’re able to travel visa free to EU countries”, the paper writes.

TRIBUNA

The current dialogue between Pristina and Belgrade can be concluded with an agreement for normalization and cooperation, but it won’t be a Peace Treaty, international sources told the paper.

The Kosovo presidency, according to Tribuna, denied this topic has been discussed so far.

KOHA DITORE

Albania reiterated the need for the recognition of Kosovo, the daily writes.

The paper says Albanian officials have urged all states which haven’t recognized Kosovo to do so during the last session of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation.

Balkan Insight has not verified the facts in the original press reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy.
